Hi everyone! I have a 9 month old Australian Shepherd. He is the sweetest! When we got him at 4 months he had a very shy demeanor. He never loved strangers, he doesn’t like his face touched but he was never mean or barked.
I would have strangers give him a treat and touch his back if he felt comfortable. I felt like he was getting more comfortable. We take him everywhere with us so he is very socialized.
This past month he has become very aggressive with his bark toward strangers. To the point where I’m not sure if he is going to bite them or not.
Me and my husband will be sitting at a coffee shop and if anyone comes within 3 feet he barks aggressively and scares the person. This is becoming a problem now.
We have him in agility and obedience training.
